The unique technique of metal embossing developed by Gad is used in all the metal ketubot
Each metal panel is embossed, polished and cut by hand, thus making each ketubah a one-of-a-kind piece of art
Creases and imperfections are the nature of of the hand-made process amd contribute to the folkcraft spirit of each ketubah
The Dead Sea Scrolls, buried in a cave for thousands of years until discovered less than 60 years ago are the inspiration for the calligraphy used in the ketubot by Gad Almaliah
Each signed print is framed in a high quality custom metal frame.
On the left panel, in modern Hebrew typography embossed on metal, King Solomon's Song of Songs speaks lovingly of 'my darling among maidens.'
On the right panel, a passage from the Book of Jeremiah promises 'I will betroth you.'
These words of love are punctuated by proud peacocks and trees on the land -- symbols of beauty and prosperity
